Fanfiction for Change @Central CMR

participants in a previous Fanfiction for Change workshop
August 12, 2017 - 2:30pm-4:30pm (ended)

Join us for this free creative writing workshop in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room.

Do you love science fiction and fantasy -- but not the tired old tropes about damsels in distress and dark-skinned savage aliens? Are you ready for a story in which your favorite characters roll up their sleeves and smash the system like you know they want to? Stop waiting and write it yourself!

Bring your imagination to this deeply interactive storytelling workshop, in which we'll tear apart our favorite guilty-pleasure far-off worlds. We'll keep what works and rebuild the rest from scratch, focusing on how race, gender, and inequality are portrayed. And, in the process, we'll use our stories to learn how change happens here in our own neighborhoods.

Led by racial equity trainers and working artists Tammy Johnson and Channing Kennedy of Art/Work Practice, LLC

Ages 12 and up are welcome to attend. No rsvp required.
